Happy Friday my friends!

Do you guys even feel like it’s summer? Here in the mid-west, we have been having the most bummer weather ever. It’s like non-stop rain. Which means that it is going to feel like the apocalypse is upon us when the hoards of mosquitos descend on us in the next two or three weeks. It also means that my children are literally bouncing off the walls.

Today with their fearless babysitter they had a paper airplane throwing competition . . . in the garage. It was both ingenious and sad. ????

Here is hoping that the weather turns around before the Fourth of July and we really get into the thick of summer. I woke up this morning thinking about how we are getting so close to the Fourth of July and how I have so many recipes perfect for summer gatherings that I want to share with you before then! We already got in the Shrimp Pasta Salad and that perfect Three Ingredient Pink Party Punch. Now! Another easy fluff recipe! Ya’ll went nuts for the Strawberry Banana Fluff Salad, it now has like 200 thousand shares on Facebook. So, let me introduce you to Cherry Cheesecake Fluff!

WHAT GOES INTO CHERRY CHEESECAKE FRUIT FLUFF?

  • Cream Cheese
  • Cheesecake Pudding Mix, though if you can’t find that just use vanilla.
  • Vanilla extract
  • Milk
  • Cool Whip, if you prefer not to use cool whip, you can use homemade cool whip, which is stabilized with gelatine.
  • Cherry Pie Filling
  • Mini Marshmallows

It’s so simple and so easy to throw together.

TIPS FOR THIS CHERRY CHEESECAKE FLUFF

Does it seem super ridiculous to give you tips for a simple recipe? Guys. We are all at different abilities. Don’t judge. Some of us can’t even ball a melon.

  1. Make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature. I like to a fill a small bowl with water, microwave it for 5 minutes, empty it, and then put that over the cream cheese that is still in the foil wrap but out of the cardboard box. Even right out of the refrigerator that brings it to room temperature in about 10 minutes.
  2. As mentioned above, I used cool whip, but you could certainly make homemade whipped cream and then stabilize it following this great recipe from Something Swanky.
  3. If you watch the video for this, you will see that I didn’t mix the cool whip in with the beater before adding the cherries and marshmallows. That was so I could get that pretty picture of all the ingredients in the bowl you see above. Don’t be like me, guys. Whip the cool whip in with the cream cheese and other liquid ingredients before adding the cherries and marshmallows.

    It looks great. Grown folks can have gram crackers for dipping & the littles can have some teddy grahams.

    • Lisa Longley says

      I hope you give it a try!

  2. Sarah says

    I made this per your instructions and you put that you beat all ingredients minus the marshmallows and cherry pie filling all together. Yet in the video you mixed the cream cheese, milk, vanilla and pudding separate from the cool whip. My dessert texture didn’t turn out right it looks all grainy

    • Lisa Longley says

      Correct, they are different from one another, but I’ve made it both ways with good results. I’m so sorry that this didn’t work for you. Without me being there, I’m not quite sure what went wrong. Is it possible you used pudding mix that has to be cooked?

  3. Jill says

    This cherry fluff was awesome! Could any other pie filling be used?

    • Lisa Longley says

      I’m so glad you liked it! Yes, I have always wanted to try this one with a few other pie fillings. I think blueberry would be amazing.

  6. Hennie says

    I followed this recipe to a T. Didn’t care for the texture, to thick! Maybe less marshmallo

    They were out of cheesecake pudding at the store so I used white chocolate instead, it was still very good! I think it will be even better next time with the cheesecake flavor! This might be good with other flavors too, like I’m thinking apple pie filling, leave out the marshmallows, and break up graham crackers or ginger snaps on top at the last minute.

    • Lisa Longley says

      I Leo your other ideas!
